New York, NJ, United States, 2006/01/18 - Nannies come with experience, training, and even college degrees, but they have a tough time marketing their services to families needing a live-in nanny..
The decision to pursue a career as a nanny has been made, and now it is time to find that perfect family, quality live-in environment, with good pay and benefits -- a tough task for most nannies.
Lynn Socci and Debra Sugrue are co-owners of Nannies Plus, a nationally certified, licensed, and bonded service that has placed more than 4,500 nannies since 1986. They help nannies get on the road to a successful and rewarding career.
"Being a nanny requires a significant commitment, and requires knowledge and experience about child care. A professional nanny may have training and a college degree, as well as past experience in child care. Nannies are paid anywhere from $350 to $1,000 a week depending on their level of experience. They work 10 to 12 hours a day for five days a week, and receive paid holidays, one or two weeks paid vacation, use of a car, room and board, and some receive health benefits as well," explained Sugrue.
Negotiating job duties and benefits can be a challenge. Nannies Plus makes that process easier. They assist their applicants to find employment, as well as the best conditions - financially and environmentally. They help create a nanny and family agreement, negotiate health benefits, job duties, days and hours, and travel arrangements, if needed.
"As soon as the application is received," said Socci, "we will begin the process and enter the person into our highly selective program."
Socci and Sugrue make the application process as easy as possible. The application can be printed out immediately and faxed ormailed back, or it can be filled out on line and submitted over the Internet.
Nannies Plus is a full-service nanny placement service agency that helps parents to find qualified nannies for both live-in and live-out assignments. They are a member of the International Nanny Association, the Alliance of Professional Nanny Agencies, and the Better Business Bureau. The company offers tips, advice, and other information.
